7th Ani ng Dangal (Harvest of Honors) Lifelong Learning by Queen and Gem

Awards Night for the Year’s Harvest of Honors! On 12 February 2015 my daughter and I headed to the National Museum of the Philippines. She was going to take photos and I was going to blog. She writes as well, but that’s usually the arrangement when we go together in an event. This is our second time on this occasion. First was last year when it was held at the Resorts World Manila and Nora Aunor led the awardees. This year, the 7th Ani ng Dangal (Harvest of Honors) was led by Vilma Santos-Recto. In celebration of National Arts Month, Filipino artists who received the highest achievements  in the previous year’s international competitions are recognized by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).

National Museum (Old Senate Session Hall) is a perfect venue for Ani ng Dangal Awards Night.
